Sea Monkeys

 Yeah, cheap shot. But you get to see my legs (woohoo!) and part of our rather dirty pool. Important note: I only knitted 4 lace repeats, I did not knit 6, and I don’t think that I would have been able to get all 6 out of 330 yards of sportweight. However, I wanted them to be a little shorter.

 I’ve gotten a LOT of favorable comments on these socks. I have to warn you—this is a limited edition color, produced in ONE skein for the teen party.  Kate is considering releasing it this fall, along with the new colorways, because she did keep notes on how to reproduce it—it is called Spunky. If you really like it, you can contact her at:

  •  Her Ravelry profile: YarnLove
  • Comment here! I’ve asked Kate to keep an eye on the comments here, and I’ll be letting her know if there’s people interested in this colorway!

  Very interestingly, at Kate’s blog, she mentions that she was considering releasing sock blanks in her yarn. Knitpicks, however, has just released their own line of sock blanks and she muses if people will wonder if she’s a copycap.

 I’d say, I would rather get sock blanks from her because I’ve heard from MANY yarn dyers that their sock yarn pills. Why would I go to the trouble to dye a sock blank when it’s going to pill in a few days? Anywhere, here’s her blog post about it and if you’d like to encourage her, head on over and comment!

    I don’t know what I like better–the socks or the picture. Those colors make my day!

    THAT’S where I saw that colorway before! I didn’t realize you’d done it with your Spunky yarn. I don’t know about you, but they just make me smile every time I see them.
